Tanning a rabbit skin

Has anyone ever tried this, through "home remedies" or from a purchased kit? My boy has been asking me about doing it this fall when we go out (he's been eyeballin' the rabbits when they get close to the garden, too!). I'd like to give it a whirl, if I knew it would come out ok.

Thanks!
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Well when I was a kid my dad tanned a fox hide and used salt and another additive he bought from a magazine. He dried it out and scraped off the fat left on the hide, it came out pretty good. Check out this site, it might be able to help you. http://forum.hunting.net/asppg/tm.asp?m=868072
